Hi, I have a 6' hazel hurdle fence separating mine and my neighbour's patios. It's quite gappy so I need something growing up it for a bit more privacy. At the moment I have rosa Felicite et Perpetue but it's too big for the fence and I'm constantly cutting it back.
I thought I could replace it with a small honeysuckle like Rhubarb and Custard, but I know mature honeysuckle stems can get quite thick. Do you think this would damage the fence? Would I be better off with a small group 1 clematis? Or something else?
The fence is south facing but is shaded by the house in the mornings.
